    Sitting at work...doing nothing but thiinking....and figureign out how much ammo I should keep on hand...so what is the consensos? Is it per firearms, or primary / seconday weapons?

    I figure about 1000 rds per primary weapon of each household member...and 500 for sidearms. Not sure what to do about the mosins and stuff?:confused:

    My thought process has always been get and keep as much as you can afford. Reloading helps alot. I usually buy in bulk, 1,000 rounds at a time. But the more I have, the more I shoot. The key, I reckon, is to set some aside and don't touch it! I just haven't got that part mastered. Good Shooting!

    I keep about 300 rounds of ammo on hand. If I were to need more in a hurry, I can get it without much trouble. I have access to about 30,000 rounds of various type for what I'd need, so I'm not real worried. 300 rounds is about all I can carry effectively anyways. That won't cover all my firearms, just the most essential ones.

    If that don't get the job done, any more ain't gonna be much help.

    Got a heck of a deal on it, now I don't know what to do with it all. Should start practicing for armageddon so my shoulder won't be sore huh? I think i'll sell 1,500 of the rounds and keep the rest.

    The best argument for having a few .22s around is the ammo logistics

    I keep about 25K rounds myself I have a min. of 1000 per caliber and usually if I get down to about 20K I go ahead and load up about 10K and keep the rotation going.
